Squar Milner offers extensive experience working with clients in various sectors of the manufacturing and distribution industry. Many of our partners have served as executive management in early-stage and middle-market companies, giving us the ability to understand the unique needs of those companies. Our expertise in the field allows us to understand the challenges facing your company and tailor our audit, tax, advisory and other services to best suit your needs.

The Squar Milner M&D team brings an understanding of the processes and industry knowledge that is important to your organization. We not only bring technical expertise and dedicated practice serving small and mid-size public and private M&D companies, but we can also offer valuable client relationships with private equity sponsors, middle-market lenders, and investment bankers. Our team of in-house specialists in the areas of international tax, state and local tax, and research and development tax credits provides value-added capabilities typically only available at the National or Big 4 accounting firms. But at Squar Milner, you can have it all and receive top-notch client service.
